The modern wedding requires instant access to plans and shareable content across multiple devices, which is why so many couples now use online tools to track every detail. From spreading announcements across social media to researching the perfect photographer, you should know how to plan everything from the comfort of your home before it’s time to walk down that aisle.
Use Google Search Expertly
As much as it seems to be a given that you’ll use Google’s search engine, remember there are many ways to apply different filters and settings to get the most accurate results. The image search function can help you a lot when you want to find examples of poses and themes to take to a wedding photographer or research the work of photographers near you.
Make Pinterest Your Second Home
It’s an industry favorite for a reason, and that’s because Pinterest makes it so easy to build collections and gather articles, pictures and blog posts into one place. The app and browser extensions make it even easier to grab ideas quickly on any device. Share it with the rest of the people on your wedding plans committee so they can see the vision come to life while you pin to your heart’s content.
